30 gorgeous hair accessories that’ll set off your look this summer

It’s not enough to simply have great hair anymore. These days, you need great hair topped with something even greater – yes, hair accessories are all having a serious moment.

From Chanel and Simone Rocha on the runway to Pippa Middleton at Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding, bands, bows and barrettes have been adorning the chicest heads everywhere for months, making them must-purchase item of the summer – which is why the high street is awash with them.

Accessorize recently told fashion bible Drapers that ‘2019 will forever be known as ‘the year of the headband’, reporting that sales across all hair categories are ‘huge’. Oliver Bonas is creating new turban knots and maxi-bows to keep up with demand, while other popular styles like pearl and tortoiseshell hair slides are flying out of stock on sites like ASOS.

But don’t fret if you’ve missed the first wave, there’s still plenty of gorgeous pieces ready to shop – and your purchase doesn’t have to break the bank either.
